This one-day workshop will bring together the Earth Observation community, modeling, and other water management communities to look at issues of drought and management approaches in various regions (Asia/Australia, America, Europe and Africa) and the needs of the community for GEOSS-derived information. The workshop will consist of a series of presentations, breakout sessions and discussions. A report will be written, with recommendations for GEOSS.
Interoperability 360 intends to discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of the interoperability of systems, services, data, organisations, people, and disciplines from a holistic perspective. Traditional notions of syntactic and semantic interoperability offer only a limited view of what is needed in practice, and do not prepare you for applications in the real world. To fill this gap, the week draws on real-life experience in a global setting, contrasting an approach backed by legislation (INSPIRE), with one based on voluntary contributions (the Global Earth Observatons System of Systems or GEOSS).
The conference will be held in Florence (Firenze), Italy.

The closest international airport is Logan International Airport (BOS)
Parking in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and hard to find (Marriott Parking is $22 per day for self-park). Whenever possible, park your car at the hotel, and use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, on- and off-street parking is available for a fee, but most public parking is not very close to the center of the MIT campus
Public Transportation (the MBTA, known as "the T")
The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line, you may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay, depending on where you are coming from and your destination on campus.
Public transportation fares and schedules may be found at the MBTA website. If you are coming to MIT for an extended visit, you may want to consider buying a stored value CharlieCard or an unlimited use weekly or monthly pass.
GeoWeb 2007’s principal theme, “From Mashups to Infrastructure,” reflects the breadth, the evolution and the growing maturity of the GeoWeb. This theme acknowledges the highly visible consumer applications that helped spawn the GeoWeb while emphasizing that the GeoWeb is increasingly playing a meaningful role in mainstream, mission-critical applications. As such, the GeoWeb is now a key component in critical decision-making across a broad spectrum of market segments and application domains.
The Call for Papers for GeoWeb 2007 is now closed. Check back soon for program details.

This First International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-Geoinformatics 2012) will be held in Shanghai, China on August 2-4, 2012. This conference has been sponsored by USDA through a Science and Education Competitive Grants Program grant "Enhancing Knowledgeable Agricultural Decision Support in Global Perspectives - Collaborative Partnership in Agro-geoinformatics Education and Research Exchange" and other organizations. The Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) of George Mason University is responsible for organizing and Shanghai Jiaotong University for hosting the conference. We estimate that at least 200 professionals from all over the world will attend the conference. The conference will include plenary, oral, and poster sessions.
